TOPIC: Millennials in the Workforce

You are the assistant manager of recruitment at a small marketing firm that is expanding rapidly. Your supervisor needs to recruit new employees, and you have been given the task of researching one specific segment of the workforce: millennials. You have been given two sources to review, and your job is to write a short report that can be used as a guide to inform these recruitment strategies.

Your report should consider the following questions, in addition to any other points you feel are important:

  • What seem to be some of the pros and cons of millennial employees?

  • What are some specific strategies forrecruiting,managing, andretaining millennials?

  • Would you recommend adopting a strategy to recruit millennials specifically? Why or why not?

Your supervisor has given you two resources to review in drafting your report. To earn full credit, you will incorporate both of these resources into your report to support your arguments and recommendations.

Because your findings will be presented to the Board of Directors, your supervisor has specifically requested that you organize this short report using the indirect arrangement. Thus, you will need a brief yet informative introduction that prepares your readers for your recommendations. Presenting the supporting data before your ultimate recommendations will prepare the reader to accept your solution to this problem.

Write up a short report of at least 400 words describing your findings and recommendations.

The primary audience for this report is your direct supervisor, and the secondary audience is the Board of Directors. Thus, you should adopt an appropriate tone for this audience. Your recommendations need to be clear so that your company can move forward with its recruitment strategies.

You will format this report as a business memorandum (memo).
